Two investigators conducted a search of English language publications using MEDLINE, PubMed, EMBASE, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, and EBSCO databases from inception until November 2017. The search used a combination of key words and controlled vocabulary for the concepts pyoderma gangrenosum, topical treatments, injectabletreatments, corticosteroids, and immunomodulatory, which were adapted to each database. Citations of retrieved articles were searched to extract publications not identified in the database search.
